Marine life

Marine Census

After 10 years of research, scientists have released pictures and documentation of new marine life they have discovered.  So strange, so mysterious and so beautiful!  Since a picture is worth a thousand words, you must watch this video or if this one has been removed, google it and find another one!

Newest discoveries from the deep, places previously unexplored.  As much art as science.  2700 scientists.  Nearly a quarter of a million new species.  One amazing find after another.  The diversity of life.  The richness of it.  The connectivity of it.  A long-haired crab they discovered was so unusual that it required a new family designation.  (Remember kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus, species?)   The Darth Vadar jellyfish (yes, he really does look like Darth Vadar) was found in the Antarctic more than a half mile below the surface of the ocean.

One scientist explained that this census is like exploring a dark house with a flash light, then he said, “Just wait until we turn on the lights!”  AWESOME!   But the most telling part of this story is that there was no mention of the God who formed the paths of the sea.  No glory given to the creator of the universe in which we live.  No knowledge or recognition of the divine.

Think about these discoveries and this, “The sea is His, for He made it.”  So amazing!
